For over 20 years I have received Pax, the journal of the Swedish Peace Society. I have always read it as a matter of duty. Rarely has it interested me much. I am a passive pacifist — a passivist, as a radical relative of mine once wrote me from prison, where he had been put for vandalising a fighter plane.
Now Pax has been discontinued. I won’t miss it. I’ll just continue to pay my membership dues and a monthly donation to investigate the Swedish arms industry. In fact, I’m going to hike the donation up to compensate for inflation.
